Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

A pair of Sandhill Cranes was seen on the Arnold Palmer Legends golf course off of CR 466 near Morse Blvd. in The Villages, FL on Friday.  These birds appear to be yearlings and maybe are a couple.  The big birds are often spotted on the edges of golf courses here.

I was excited to see the cranes near the fence next to the multi-modal trail where we were driving in the golf cart.  It certainly made it easy to get the snap-shots of the cranes.  By the way, the grasses here in our area are going dormant due to the season and that is why many lawns are looking a lot more brown these days.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, it is always wonderful to see these big birds. Great photos. Wishing you a happy day!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! Same to you. In a few hours, I am going to go outside in my back yard and watch a rocket launch from the cape so that is exciting. It is molting and nesting season so fewer birds are out but I’ll take some snap-shots this afternoon after watching the rocket go up. Have a wonderful day!
